Here goes my foray into blog writing. Frank Viola has inspired me to start. In one of Frank’s recent podcasts he makes the case that every Christian today should have a blog, just as a way of communicating to people what our passions are. Who knows? It could resonate with someone. Add to that, the facts that: (1) I like to write. (2) My friend Jerry has been encouraging me for years to write in some public forum. (3) I use the phrase, “I find it interesting that ….” a lot. I like thinking about God, ideas, theology, people, and what it means to try to live life as a follower of Jesus Christ in the early 21st century – particularly as a married, middle-aged, father, government worker, and resident of a small town in south Mississippi (Picayune to be specific). I think I’ll enjoy the writing. If a few others find it enjoyable, helpful, interesting – or even irritating – all the better.
